Ceroplastes destructor(CERPDE)

Distribution details in United States of America

Current pest situation evaluated by EPPO on the basis of information dated 1999: Absent, invalid record
From CABI Pest map 117 (2000): Present, restricted distribution
According to the latest expert opinion (1999), C. destructor does not occur in any American country, so this record is presumably mistaken.

According to Qin TK (2000), this record is based on Ebeling (1959) which was probably a misidentification of C. dugesii.
